Back to School: The Importance of Packing a Water Bottle

Going back to school can be both exciting and stressful, but there’s one simple thing students can do to make the transition a little easier: pack a water bottle.

As parents and students gear up for the start of the new school year, it’s important to remind ourselves – and others – of the importance of staying hydrated. Packing a water bottle for the school day is a simple yet effective way to ensure that students are getting enough water throughout the day.

Hydrated and Focused : Maintaining Good health and Brain Functioning

Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining good health and keeping your brain functioning at its best. When you’re dehydrated, you may feel tired, and sluggish. You might even experience headaches. This is not a great state to be in! Especially when you’re trying to learn and retain new information.

Packing a water bottle is an easy way to make sure you’re getting enough water throughout the day. Many schools now have water bottle filling stations added to their fountains. This makes it easier to refill your bottle, and stay hydrated.
